Amigurumi Easter Egg! Free Crochet Pattern.

Amigurumi Easter eggs. Easy crochet pattern.

I’m fairly sure Easter only exists still because of chocolate. And since Easter has my favourite sort of chocolate, I am here to celebrate it with a little bit of crochet. Mini eggs and creme eggs are both very good reasons to look forward to Easter but neither truly beat a large Cadbury’s Dairy Milk (or other Cadbury) egg that has been put in the fridge for at least two hours. When I was little I used to drink milk out of half a chocolate egg. The other half used to get cracked into a mug and ruined with hot water to make some kind of bad hot chocolate. I don’t waste it like that now, I shovel it in my face whilst hiding behind the fridge door. Mostly I hide because the chocolate doesn’t belong to me. When I’ve finished mine I’m then stealing from the children. Anyway, I shall move on…

Pretty amigurumi Easter eggs. Free crochet pattern.I came up with the pattern for these at Christmas. I was trying to design a Father Christmas head/hat combo but whatever shape I tried looked like an egg. I binned the FC idea but out of it came these so I can’t complain. I think they’re cute but I’m not really an Easter celebrator (chocolate aside) so dunno where they’ll go.

Happy Easter! Cute amigurumi Easter eggs. Free crochet pattern.Here is the pattern. As with most amigurumi patterns, it is written in US terms. I used Stylecraft Special DK and a 3mm hook. I even found a use for Duck Egg, a colour I reeeally don’t like. Which makes me ask myself why I bought it in the first place. Huh.

Fasten off leaving a long tail. Stuff firmly. Using a darning needle thread through the front loops only. Pull tight to close the hole. Stitch in and out a few times to fully secure and then snip the end neatly.

(Go HERE to see what I’ve done with the pattern for 2018!!)

Amigurumi Easter Eggs. Free crochet pattern.Decorating is relatively quick and easy. I went in through the bottom of each egg and then made french knots for the flower centres and a few chain stitches for petals and leaves.Β  With a poke and a prod from the darning needle, the snipped ends can be hidden inside. Hey presto!

EDIT: For 2017 I’ve added a video tutorial on YouTube, which also includes how to decorate with pretty embroidery. Please go here! Cheers.

This is a pattern I’ve designed myself and belongs to me. It can be used to make decorations for yourself or for gifts for friends and family but not pinched or mass produced. Thanks very much. Feel free to say hello and you can even follow my blog to get more patterns and, dare I say, inspiration. Cheers!

  1. These are so cute! I have never done any Easter crochet and I guess this year it won’t happen with packing, moving etc πŸ™ your embroidery makes these special

    1. Thank you!! Too much amigurumi makes my wrists hurt so i’m not doing any more easter crochet either. I think you could squeeze in some crochet/knitting breaks inbetween the packing, it’ll keep you sane! Plus you’re going to have a very long flight. Are you allowed hooks/needles on a plane?

      1. I think anything bamboo or plastic is ok, you hear about people having to post their metal needles home from the airport. Not sure how much time I will actually have with two little ones on a plane though!

  2. As a chocoholic I would like these as egg cosys for my chocolate egg but they look superb in your shot glasses!

    1. Thanks! They’ve been surprisingly popular. I was gobsmacked to see a crazy increase in visitors here. I guess I need to get some more ideas for crochet patterns now…

  3. Hi there. These are cute, but they’re not amigurumi. The word “amigurumi” is only for dolls and creatures and Amigurumi (capital A) is the art of making dolls by crocheting or knitting them. It’s in the name (niugurumi = doll, ami = crocheted or knitted). Inanimate objects are just plushies or stuffies.

    1. That’s just pedantry. The term has also become synonymous with this technique. If you’re concerned, please embroider a cute face upon your eggs. Hey presto, problem solved!
